Read About Two Americans Commenting On Poverty

I grew up in the 80s-90s. My parents were postal employees, nothing special, making somewhere around $60-70k combined. Six-person family (parents, three kids, and a grandmother who retired in the early 90s), a large house (would probably cost over $700k now), and two cars.

We went on a vacation somewhere in the US for at least a week every summer, one year we took a month off and drove around the US stopping all along the way. We went to Disneyworld in 1991 as a family of five and spent a week there.

I make almost double what they made back then, and I can’t do any of that. I went to Disneyworld with my gf this past January for ONE DAY and it was almost $600 just to get in the door.
